Wes Bush Dissects Northrop’s Fiscal Figures

Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) reported the following financial information: “second quarter 2010 earnings from continuing operations increased to $711 million, or $2.34 per diluted share, from $368 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2009. The 2010 second quarter included a tax benefit of $296 million, or $0.97 per diluted share, which was partially offset by a pre-tax charge of $113 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, related to the company’s decision to consolidate its Gulf Coast shipbuilding operations. The net impact of the tax benefit and the consolidation charge increased second quarter earnings from continuing operations by $0.73 per diluted share. Second quarter 2010 sales increased 3.3 percent to $8.8 billion from $8.5 billion.”

“Overall, we’re pleased with our second quarter results. Our focus on performance improvement is generating positive results across all our businesses. Aerospace, Electronics, Information Systems and Technical Services each generated solid operating income growth, ” said Wes Bush, chief executive officer and president. “Shipbuilding, before the consolidation-related adjustment, demonstrated that they are on a solid path of performance improvement. The increase in our 2010 EPS guidance reflects the strength of this quarter’s results. Looking ahead, we foresee a more challenging environment, and we are proactively managing our businesses to create value for shareholders while supporting our customers’ focus on affordability.”
